I don't know about anyone else but I find it hard to believe that it is the middle of November already! In just under two weeks it will be the end of the trimester and our year will be 1/3 over. I don't know where the time goes.

I was so impressed last night with our young thespians and the fabulous job they did performing 18 Reasons Not To Be In A Play in the Team Teaching Room. This year was a bit of a challenge with construction deciding what kind of play to do, where to perform etc. The directors (Julie Fahey and Tricia Miller) did an outstanding job and the students were awesome! It was very well done.

As you may have heard, we opened our new cafeteria/multi-purpose room this week. It was a thrill to see the looks on the faces of the students as they realized the "wall" had been opened to the hallway leading to the space. As they peaked in they all became very excited. Food Service now has a beautiful equipment with lots of functioning equipment and the students have an incredibly pleasant environment to enjoy their lunch. If you come to school and have a couple of extra minutes (it still takes a couple of minutes to walk down there from our existing entrance), stop in and take a peak.

Our next parent meeting is scheduled for December 22nd. I know this is not an ideal date. I couldn't meet on the last Monday in November because I have an event I need to attend with my two kids. Waiting until January seemed like an awfully long time to wait. We also typically use that date in January to meet with 8th grade parents regarding EXPLORE test results.

As always, please let me know if you have questions or comments!
